“I was just found guilty of running FOUR consecutive red lights in NYC. My fine is $2000. If I don’t pay the balance shortly my license will be suspended. Is there a maximum number of red light violations that I can be liable for? I’m hoping to get just one dismissed after the fact – that would be a great relief.”
